A free, family concert will kick off Salina Public Library’s Summer at the Library. Rockin’ dad, Jim Cosgrove, will perform at 6:30 p.m. Thursday in Caldwell Plaza, just south of the library.
Cosgrove, also known as “Mr. Stinky Feet,” has delighted audiences for over two decades with his high energy, interactive concerts. He has performed throughout North America and Europe, including two performances at the White House. His discography includes Swimming in Noodles (2010), Pick Me! Pick Me! (2003) and Stinky Feet (1999). He has won two Gold National Parenting Publication Awards, seven Parents’ Choice Awards and “Favorite Entertainer” by Kansas City Parent Magazine, and published Everybody Gets Stinky Feet, a collection of 32 essays from his time as a parenting columnist for The Kansas City Star.
Summer at the Library includes children’s performers, like Cosgrove; storytimes; art and discovery programs; math, reading and technology classes; and movie screenings. The library is calling on the community to demonstrate the value of reading by helping to reach the goal of 25,000 books read. Each book read this summer, from May 24 to July 25, can be logged toward the goal.
In case of bad weather, the concert will move inside the library to the Prescott Room. Find out more about Summer at the Library, by calling (785) 825-4624, go online to www.salinapubliclibrary.org/
